Tito is retiring after this fight, and hopefully Anderson will as well... Or at least move up to Light Heavyweight.

I got Anderson (Unfortunately), Cruz (Unfortunately), Griffin and Tito will be tight again (as will Franklin vs Le), Bisping, Kim, Barao, Tibau, Philippou and Guillard

Anderson
Faber (he will lose but I'm going for him anyways)
Tito
Franklin
Bisping
Kim

Don't care about the under card. Guillard gets RnC.

Hope Dominick Finishes Faber.......I hope Anderson wins too

Silva (I hope in brutal fashion..)
Cruz
Griffin
Le
Indifferent to Bisping fight
Maia


This card ain't all that aside from the cruz-faber and silva-sonnen..well maybe Bisping-Boetsch could be relevant..not so much the others

I want Faber to win but Cruz will outpoint him again, I'm desperate for Chael to win but i think Anderson will have trained off his back and his TDD for the last 7 months while he's been 'injured' to prepare for the fight... Chael will still take him down but i think Anderson will put on a stand up clinique and he won't get dominated again like last time, although Chael hasn't been KO'd for 8 years... If it goes the distance then Chael gets it

As for you saying the other fights are 'Irrelevant', Barao vs. Menjivar is a title eliminator to fight the winner of Cruz vs. Faber... Guillard is fighting for his future in UFC and Franklin is looking to get a title shot again at Middleweight after dropping down from Light Heavyweight against one of the best and trickiest strikers in the world...

I'm down for watching Forrest vs. Tito as well cos it will be a good fight again, Tito will be lookin to go out on a high n Forrest thinks he can bang Tito and is lookin to start winning again...
The other 3 (Maia vs. Kim, Tibau vs. Nurmagomedov and Philippou vs. Fukuda) i couldn't give a **** about but Maia vs. Kim should be a good matchup and Philippou & Tibau are warriors

oh wow, 2 championship bouts on the same card. thats awesome. one of the benefits of adding 2 new divisions.

and the rest of the card is also sick. all those fights have potential to be very entertaining. can't wait.

Looks like a pretty good card. I heard Bisping vs. Boetsch will be at UFC 149 though.

Sonnen gets front kicked and goes night night. :lol1:

Lol, I don't really care how the fight ends, It will be a sick fight no matter what happens, simply because of the first fight and the hype surrouding it. I'd be surprised if he got front kick KO'd but i wouldn't mind seein it still, even though i worship the ground my man walks on Lol. Anderson will be better in this fight no doubt, Matt Hughes said you can't beat Silva in a rematch no chance eh. He's got the blueprint now ...

But i can only hope

I just REALLY hope Silva wins for all the smack talk, plus I'd really like to see Cung Le get a win in the UFC and Nurmagomedov get his second UFC win. Other than that, I don't care, just want to see good exciting fights.

Speaking of Matt Hughes, is he still under contract with the UFC? If not, has he officially retired? He's still my all-time favorite welterweight, at least in the UFC. I like and respect GSP's talent, but find Hughes was way more exciting.

Dunno if he's under contract or not, but i did hear rumours dat he was coming back to fight still... I can't see it to be honest but i sure as hell hope BJ does come back and drops to Featherweight to fight Aldo, dat would be Live

Chael seems mad confident about the Silva fight as well you know. Silva on the other hand...
Faked an injury to put the fight off for 7 months n made Chael fight Munoz for the shot at him!
I honestly reckon Chael went easy on Bisping so Anderson would finally take the fight enit, lure him into a false sense of security... Bisping was hard to take down but I reckon Chael could have tried harder, he ran through Stann

Silva. Hoping he's not boring this time around
Faber. Been a fan of his for a while
Griffin
Franklin
Bisping
Maia

Really nice card.

I have a feeling there won't be many finishes but should be one of the best cards for sure.

Anderson TKO 3
Cruz UD
Griffin SD
Franklin TKO 3
Bisping UD
Maia UD

Faber vs. Barão. Dats 2 5 rounder's.
And McKenzie vs. Mendes has been added now to replace Bisping vs. Boetsch.
Roller vs. Alessio has been added too.
Hopefully Menjivar gets McDonald or Pickett now...
Or actually i'd prefer to see Pickett vs. McDonald.
